A colourful end to term one for Cowra Public School | Photos, video

The Cowra Public School has raised roughly $14,000 from its first ever kindergarten to Year 6 colour run to go towards new PE equipment and to subsidise school excursions.

More than 350 students, staff and family members took part in the obstacle course at River Park on Friday, also aimed at getting all the students together at the one same event.

“We’ve done it as a fundrasier for PE equipment and to subsidise excursions and just basically to end term one with a bang,” organiser Sam Dunk said.

“It’s to encourgage whole school involvement as well.”

As of Friday about $14,000 had been raised by the students mostly online and by doing door to door fundraising.

Prizes for each students who raised money and a class prize was up for grabs for the class which raised the most money.

Ms Dunk said the school received heaps of support from local community groups to help make the day a “great one”.

Ms Dunk, who came up with the idea and was the chief organiser, said she’d like to make it an annual event on the Cowra Public School calendar.
